Summary: 
Meeting of the royal hacienda to evaluate and determine the cost of the new colony, to revise the methods of pacification and reduction of Indians in Nuevo Santander. Several letters from Escandon to the virrey expressing the need for new families to volunteer to populate more villages. Escandon requests money to buy corn for the villages and the missions that are taking care of the Indians. He argues it is a good method to maintain peaceful relations with the Indians. Altamira answers the letters of Escandon and suggests the virrey accept the request. (D. Bautista, April 1990)
